The soliton wave model of action potentials, and the proposal of induced lipid pores, are potentially paradigm shifting ideas which challenge accepted views of the Hodgkin-Huxley model and of protein-based ion channels.  These two proposals are reviewed, and possible tests of each are presented.  Also, three key non-electrical features seen during action potentials are reviewed;  a shift in birefringence, the pattern of heat emission and absorption, and the expansion of cell diameter.  How...
